Network communication permission is only for mobile data switch and detection.

The app doesn’t allow reconnection interval under 7 minutes since that will drain your battery more than keeping the connection always enabled.

If you notice that the phone doesn’t always reconnect when you unlock the phone try disabling the option “wait for unlock” (if that option is off the manager will enable the connection when you turn the screen on)

If you can’t see the widgets in launcher after installing the app please try rebooting your phone (Android bug).

Chinese Lunar Calendar for your Google Calendar

If you use Google calendar on your browser, you might already know you could put an alternate Chinese Lunar calendar in it, if you don’t know, here is how, go to your browser, Google Calendar->Settings->General->Alternative Calendar->Chinese Calendar-Simplified Chinese, then you will get something like this, the little dates in Chinese on the upper left corner of every rectangle.

Google Calendar Web

but even after you did that, your Google calendar won’t show on your Google Calendar app on your android devices because it just won’t give you an option to show your alternate calendar.  Well, there is a way, you could either import it to your calendar or add by URL.  After trying a few methods, the easiest/best way is probably this, use your web browser and go to this link here and click the “+Google Calendar” button in the lower-right corner to add it to your calendars. By doing this, you will get a little number on each rectangle upper right corner on your Google calendar (browser version)(picture above),  and you will get the little numbers with month and date in each rectangle (app version)(picture below).

P.S. tho the screen shot is SamSung S Planner app, but it works the same way as Google Calendar app.

Download videos and musics from YouTube, no add-ons needed!!!

YouTube download

YouTube download

Watching YouTube has become a day to day routine for a lot of people these days, you can even find TV series or movies sometimes but don’t you get sick of watching it on a browser?  Wished you could just download the whole movie or even just download the musics onto your memory cards and watch it from a media box on your TV or put everything on your smart phone instead?  This method is perfect for downloading those Web series youtube videos and watch them over and over again 😛  There used to be some add-ons for your browsers to do that but did you guys know you can actually do that by just adding ss right after www. of the video you want to download?  for example www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=XYZABC, it will redirect you to http://en.savefrom.net, then just click on the quality you want and viola, it’s done!!!  But if you wish to download the files in HD quality, I would recommend you to get the addon for your browser, just one click and you have the file 😛

One thing I want to mention too, the videos you are watching on YouTube from a browser were already rendered into flash format, so the video quality would lose a little, but by doing this, you are downloading the original, try it, it won’t hurt you 😛

Totally, forgot to mention this…  For Xbox users, you probably know you could use your Xbox controllers on your PC, but did you know that you could also use your PlayStation Dualshock3 sixaxis controller for your PC as well?  Wired or bluetooth connectivity, almost full functionality of the controller on your PC too.  Just go to the link below, download and install, that’s it!!  Not to mention you can also customize the buttons and some other tweaks too 😛
